Our Fee Arrangements for Personal Injury Cases
At Gilde Law Firm, we understand that dealing with the aftermath of a personal injury can be a challenging and overwhelming experience. That’s why we offer a contingency fee arrangement to ensure that our clients receive the best possible legal representation without worrying about upfront costs.
What are Contingency Fees?
Contingency fees are a type of fee arrangement in which the lawyer’s fee is contingent upon winning the case. This means that the lawyer only gets paid if the client receives compensation. Contingency fees are common in personal injury cases, as they ensure that clients don’t have to worry about upfront costs or paying legal fees if they don’t win their case.
Advantages of Contingency Fees
Contingency fees offer several advantages for clients. First, clients don’t have to worry about upfront costs or paying legal fees if they don’t win their case. This means that clients can focus on their recovery without worrying about financial stress. Additionally, contingency fees align the lawyer’s interests with the client’s, as the lawyer only gets paid if the client receives compensation. That means, we pick the cases we want to work on and try; and, we tend to win the cases we pick. The better we do for you and your family, the better we do for ours.
How Our Contingency Fees Work
At Gilde Law Firm, we charge a contingency fee of percentage for personal injury cases. This means that if we win a case, we take a fee off the top of the total recovery as our fee. If we don’t win the case, the client doesn’t owe us anything. In addition to our contingency fee, clients may be responsible for other costs and expenses related to their case, such as court fees or medical expenses. It’s like “parts and labor.” The client pays the mechanic for their time and pays for the parts that improve the vehicle – same thing here.
Other Fee Arrangements
In addition to contingency fees, we can offer other fee arrangements for personal injury cases. Hourly fees are a common fee arrangement for other types of cases, and we may use them in certain situations. We also offer flat fees for certain legal services, such as drafting legal documents or conducting legal research. These types of fees can be costly over time, which is why contingency fees are your best bet.
At Gilde Law Firm, we believe that every client deserves quality legal representation, regardless of their financial situation. That’s why we offer a variety of fee arrangements, including contingency fees, to ensure that our clients can focus on their recovery without worrying about upfront costs.
